What books to read right now

There are a few things about reading (specifically books) that have improved since the advent of the online electronic book, or ebook as it’s known today.
Project Gutenberg is a great project that has brought many open literary works to digital print making it possible for anyone to read books for free online.
These ebooks are totally free to read online or download but if you enjoy the resource and have the means, they accept donations. The cool part about Google eBooks is that they aren’t necessarily stored on your computer or other devices but the ebooks are accessible from the cloud.
There are many more resources online where you can find ebooks for sale and websites where you can visit to read books online for free.

For instance, the portability an electronic file brings rather than a paper book is huge, seeing as we are now able to carry hundreds of them on one computer or e-reader.


Michael Hart, who created the concept of the electronic book, and therefore changing much of the way we receive text today, died September 6, 2011 at the age of 64. With the help of many volunteers, they digitized the works of bone fide publishers that are now public domain. One warning to take notice of is that these books are free in the United States because their copyright have expired but for those outside the US, check the copyright laws in your own countries before downloading and distributing them. This makes it simple to begin reading a book on one device and pick up where you left off on another.
They have a huge and growing library of free online books comprising of genres like 18th and 19th century books, European and American fiction, myths and Science Fiction. The process is actually kind of interesting because if you are a library card holder, you just log on, choose the ebooks you want to borrow (just like the physical library), and check out. Many also offer audio books in a similar fashion so check out your local library’s website for more information.


Remember that copyright free ebooks are legal to read for free online, and Project Gutenburg is doing a good job of digitising them! Of course remember that it is legal to read free books online as long as they are copyright free. Also, the production of books in its online or electronic form is a lot cheaper when you think about the fact that ebooks don’t have to be printed. Most libraries attach a digital time limit making the borrowed book useless once your time limit is up. They provide a nice option when time is of the essence or when you just want to be entertained by creative voice overs, sound effects, and music that sometimes accompany them.
